I hope you are well and can help.
I am trying to make life easier by hopefully with your kind help, achieving a simple GUI.
I am running Windows 7.
Here is what I wish to do and what I have (I have attached a design as well I hope helps :>)).
I have a top folder. Let's call is "Master".
Underneath this folder, I have many subfolders, of unknown number, but all will contain 3 files, with similar naming convention.
So, the folder structure could look like this..
Folder Folder 3 files of similar naming convention
As you can see, the naming conventions for the 3 files are:
where "*" is the same name as the folder name given for the child folder these files reside in.
What I want to do is the following:
I want to be able to create a GUI interface that acts like a portal into accessing all of these files quickly.
As I see it, this GUI will contain 3 boxes:
Box 1 will populate all files from the subfolders with name 1of3_workings_*.txt
Box 2 will populate all files from the subfolders with name 2of3_sorted_*.txt
Box 3 will populate all files from the subfolders with name 3of3_master_*.txt
Maybe a refresh button on the form that when clicked, will re-read all subfolders and then load an updated list
of files into each box.
I want to be able to click on one of the boxes, select a file, and have the file opened for me to read and write information to it.
I dont want anything fancy.
I dont know whether a HTA or vbscript, or powershell would be easiest to use.
Any help greatly appreciated.
